Hey there! I’ve been using this Ahava Essential Day
Moisturizer that I got from Sample Room for more than a month now and I can’t
believe I haven’t done a proper review on it yet. If you would remember, I
included this product on my How To:
Layer Skincare Products
post (Read

a couple of weeks ago. So without wasting any more time, let’s
hop on to the quick review. 🙂
Product Description
(Taken from www.skinstore.com)

Category: Best All-Around Facial Moisturizer
This rapidly absorbing moisturizer drenches the skin with natural long-lasting hydration boosting the skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) enabling your skin to achieve a smoother, firmer and younger-looking state. Protects your face from environmental damage. Ideal as a makeup base.

Approved for sensitive skin. Hypoallergenic. Dermatologically tested. Paraben free.
This 15mL Ahava Essential Day Moisturizer sample cost me 75
SR points. And let me tell you, this easy-squeeze tube may look small but don’t
underestimate it! It has enough juice in it to last for more than a month! I
believe the full size (50mL, Php 1,495)
one comes in a plastic jar. Personally, I like this tube better. It’s more
hygienic and travel-friendly.
Ahava Essential Day Moisturizer is recommended for normal to
dry skin though in my honest opinion, this is more for dry to extremely dry
skin. Why? Simply because the moisturizer itself comes in a milky white cream
that takes too long for the skin to fully absorb as it is quite thick and heavy.
It is super hydrating but people with normal skin might find it too heavy and
oily for their skin type. Needless to say, people with oily skin type should
stay clear of this product especially during hot days as it will only promote
more grease and oiliness on the face.
 Another thing I’m on
the fence about this product is its smell. It’s somewhere between milky and
talc-ish (like that of the baby powders)
which, in large amount, makes my nose to be slightly itchy. Thus, causing me
sneeze – this is entirely not a bad thing though. LOL!

As for me – I have combination dry skin that tends to be a
wee bit oilier during summer – I don’t think I’ll be buying the full size one. I‘d
rather stick with lightweight moisturizers just because my skin leans more on
the oily side given the summer heat. But I would love to give it a try (again) during the “ber” months or when
it becomes unusually cold causing dry patches on my skin.
Have you tried Ahava
Essential Day Moisturizer before?
I’m currently having
mixed feelings about Ahava Mud Masque.. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on it soon. 
See you on my next
